Spring is always such a fun time to entertain. After the long days of winter (and I know some of you are still having those!) it’s nice to see spring-y colors, green hills, and fresh blooms. It makes me excited to have spring dinner parties and start planting my garden!
Today I’m back with the fabulous group of bloggers from the Styled + Set: Entertaining series, and this week is all about Easter entertaining. I am always so thrilled to join this talented group, hosted by Lory of Designthusiasm. And because I love a pretty table, I even wrote a free e-book on the subject!
This year my Easter tablescape is truly all about the blooming glory of spring! I was inspired to create a garden setting, with white hydrangeas and pink tulips as the centerpiece. I combined that with lots of texture, greens, and more flowers, and my garden party table was born!
Willow chargers (similar here) form the base for a white dinner plate and a white embossed bunny plate.
The centerpieces are made up of my favorite white hydrangeas combined with pink tulips and eucalyptus, arranged in two low cachepots. One is new from Houzz while the other is antique ironstone.
Pink hydrangeas in a French vintage zinc bucket and two kalanchoe plants brought in from outdoors help to create that garden feeling. I also added a zinc bird finial that I usually have outside, a French enamelware pitcher, and two green vine baskets from Pottery Barn.
I’ve had these little nests a long time; I tend to collect a few new ones each year (similar here). I also find them frequently at World Market, TJ Maxx or Home Goods.
When I was first planning this table, I was just going to use pink tulips in a tall vase. Casual and easy – the way I normally do flowers! However, once I changed to the cachepots I knew I needed to do the flowers shorter, so I bought some flower foam and gave it my best shot! To all you knowledgeable floral girls, I am definitely not knowledgeable about arrangements. My flowers usually consist of me cutting stems and putting them in a vase! So this is my first attempt at a more contrived arrangement, and though I will probably not do them often, it was fun to try something different!
Green linen napkins are from Williams Sonoma.
My wood candleholders are vintage. I love adding something chippy and rough to an otherwise mostly new table; I like that it keeps it from looking too pristine.
I’m really happy with how my garden inspired Easter tablescape turned out! The easy yet elegant feeling is just what I was going for, and I’m thinking I’ll most likely be recreating it for our Easter brunch!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope this gets you in the mood to start planning your Easter tablescape, or at least a spring dinner party! Next stop on the tour is my fellow French-loving friend Jamie from So Much Better with Age! And be sure to stop back later this week as well, as there will be a total of 28 bloggers sharing their Easter inspiration!
